FOR SALE: CUSTOM HORN STEREO (2) SPEAKERS and (1) .Subwoofer Combination. These are a pair of Tom Danley (of NASA) designed Unity Horn Speakers which give imaging, dynamic and overall sonic realism which is easily comparable to the best of any maker. Combines the dynamics and efficiency of a horn with the low distortion of standard speaker designs. Extremely satisfying. These have been pampered and never driven with more than 25 watts per channel even though they are rated to take up to 500 watts per channel. Retail version sold for $8,000./pair 10 years ago. These speakers are 50" tall each, and weigh each about 150 lbs. Each incorporates a B&C compression driver model DE-25-16 , four 5" midrange drivers and one Lambda TD-15 15" woofer. The 36mm thick Russian birch plywood horn lenses each retailed as a kit for $2600. per pair and a pair of TD-15 drivers were sold at nearly $800. The speakers are 94db per 1 watt efficient making them great with even low power amps. The sound quality is simply astonishing. Many people have listened to my system and commented without being asked that it was the best system they ever heard. The speakers start rolling off at 70 hz by design so the subwoofer is there to fill in the bottom end for "you are there" "watch out for the helicopters overhead" Blackhawk Down realism. So, it's a system. The 200 watt Danish-made Hypex plate amp allows you to perfectly tune in the crossover between speakers and subwoofer with many input options, like from the output from your power amp or pre-amp. Either way, it works great to seamlessly provide accuracy to the bass end of music. TRUE STORY: I once was listening to solo lute being played and felt a truck go by. I was sure it was a straight truck, but not a UPS or FedEx truck which came by every day. Looked out the window and nothing was there. Hmmm. Then, played the lute music again and there was the truck -- a low frequency rumble so accurately reproduced it fooled me and I could even tell it was not a truck from here. It was a truck from Amsterdam where the recording was made. If you want to take my advice, you'll also buy the tube amp I have for sale here on ebay -- my custom Decware Torii 12WPC tube amp. Makes a wonderful combination with these 2 speakers and subwoofer. Only one speaker shown -- they are identical, after all. Expensive to ship, so prefer local pick-up, but if you want to pay, I'll ship everything. All I can say is that this combo system is the most sonically satisfying I've ever had the pleasure to listen to. And I've heard ALOT of audiophile systems having once been a High End audiophile salon owner. Basically, I will pack, strap and palletize for $150. and you can arrange shipping/insurance yourself. I recommend DAX for international and Forward Air Freight for cheap domestic. I will drive it all to Kansas City Forward Air terminal and they will ship cheap by truck to air terminal of your choice where you pick it up. Get rate for three boxes on one pallet, total pallet weight 500 lbs. Size 60" tall by 50" wide by 25" deep. OR just come by here near Topeka, KS and save all shipping! ONLY reason I'm selling my favorite speakers system is I'm moving to Europe. Bid and be happy. NO RESERVE as I think it will do just fine. Tom Danley was a designing genius and this is his masterpiece. Starts at just a penny, but the buy it now is fair at $3300. for speakers and subwoofer. Check my other stereo gear listings, as well.

Follow-on note I forgot. The Subwoofer ALSO has Lambda drivers -- two 8" drivers feeding the loaded horn enclosure. Expensive, but worth it and designed to last longer than you will. Also, these ARE NOT B&W speakers! I don't know how that got put in the details section. These are Unity Horns designed by Tom Danley with Lambda woofers and B&C compression drivers for tweeters and four 5" midrange drivers PER speaker with a crossover and system design that mates up the efficiencies of the horn with the woofer. Brilliant.
